In October, certgate announced world’s first wireless smart card reader with MacOS CryptoTokenKit support for 2-factor authentication, encryption and electronic signature.

In October and November the software has been distributed to selected clients for BETA testing.

Today, Nov. 19th the first public version of AirID finally arrived. Please visit here our MacOS Information Page "AirID & Smart Card @ MacOS".

Apple has finalised in MacOS “Mojave” the new, trend-setting CTK (CryptoTokenKit) interface for security tokens. This will and has been further expanded in the new MacOS version “Catalina” and enables a very deep integration of AirID into the Apple operating system. For example, smart cards can be used wirelessly via Bluetooth for system services such as secure 2-factor logon to the Mac system, approval of authorisations, electronic signatures with Adobe Acrobat and for all other applications.

The AutoLock function, integrated in the wireless AirID and AirID Mini reader is also on Mac available, locking Mac automatically when the User will walk away with his AirID. This is additional security built in and the user benefits from AirID's auto protection.
